Weekend Service Changes: 9/24 – 9/26/2011

Not only do those of us who are Facebook diehards — particularly those of the non-Sheldon Cooper variety — have to contend with interface changes on the social networking site as daunting as the transition from riding a mule to manning the space shuttle Endeavor, subway riders between Saturday and Monday morning must also deal with the age-old inconvenience we call Weekend Service Changes.

Just in time to make your commute only slightly less hellish than walking barefoot on coals, we received the following notice for changes in service, including updated travel alternatives, for the Q line this weekend:

  • 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, Sep 24-26
  • No Q trains between 57 St-7 Av and Prospect Park.

Travel alternatives:

  • For service between 57 St-7 Av and Atlantic Av-Pacific St, take the N or R.
  • For service between Atlantic Av-Pacific St and Prospect Park, use free shuttle buses.

Just FYI: I’ve been riding the subways for around 23 years now, and I cannot remember a single period of time, during my entire history of riding the Brighton line (back when it was the D local / Q express, before it became the Q local / B express [Ed. – Don’t forget the Q local / Q express!), when there have not been service changes, and interruptions, and all-around inconveniences.

So I’m wondering: When will all the trains and tracks be fixed forever?

  1. Your problem is that you are just not old enough. In the 1950s, 60s and 70s there were never any service interruptions due to maintenance work. Now we are paying the price for that error. As to your question as when it will end, probably never, but it shouldn’t be as frequent once the system is in decent shape, unless the MTA runs out of money.

  2. hey, our subway system is 107 years old with many elevated lines even older, so constant maintenance and repairs are absolutely needed if you want to keep the system functional, so please quit your damn complaining and just allow a little more travel time! Besides, shuttle buses can be fun for train fans like me!
